A 16-year-old Bronx girl used Snapchat to lure three strangers into meeting up – so that her accomplices could beat and rob them at knifepoint, police said Thursday.
The crooked crew’s spree began when the girl convinced a 15-year-old boy to link up on the fourth floor of a building on E. 175th St. near Marmion Ave. in Crotona about 7:30 p.m. July 11. When her mark arrived, she claimed she needed to step out to the store.
As she left, her accomplices, two men who appear to be in their teens or early 20s, jumped into action, assaulting the boy at knifepoint and ripping his iPhone 8, $70 cash and even his sneakers away from him.
Less than an hour later, the girl conned a 22-year-old man into meeting her in the same building. When he arrived, she again said she needed something from the store, giving an opening for her accomplices to rob him of his Samsung Galaxy S7 and debit card.
